Revolving around a young musician’s struggle to break away from an abusive father, the film showcases some of Prince's most exuberant songs (including “When Doves Cry,” "Let's Go Crazy," and "Purple Rain") and fierce live-concert footage. Apollonia Kotero is ravishing as the romantic interest, and Morris Day provides lively comic rivalry. Prince won an Oscar for the music score. DCP digital. (Jim Dempsey)
